With the arrival of modern society, we seem to have forgotten modern methods to practice meditation which don’t need to be half an hour trying to consider nothing. If you consider yourself a westerner you’ve got the key before you. Practice praying everyday especially thank God for what he’s given to you. Is as easy as that.
New Age and hippie culture attempted to break our society, one which was and still is tainted in commercialization, globalization and war mongering. They’ve sought the answers in Eastern philosophy and attempted to match it in our occidental world.
This doctrine has succeeded in some way, probably the practice of transcendental meditation has become the maximum expression of the clash of cultures. Westerners tend to attempt and earn money from everything, do not be sold to false promises and prevent sectarianism at all times.
Bear in mind that to succeed in this clinic you need to be quite resilient, with an almost mechanical way of managing it. I myself practice meditation and different some minutes to this clinic, as I am 25, 30 minutes per day appears to be good.
People in the west aren’t supposed to have an empty head, even at the East the state of mind attained by meditation is thought of as just an illusion. My recommendation to you, wisdom seeker would be to see inside yourself, to understand yourself, only by understanding yourself you’ll discover the most astonishing way to accomplish meditation.
Try not to forget your significance in this world, meditation isn’t alienation. If you are new to this, my recommendation would be to attempt to clear of thoughts as you go to work, check out what you do and prevent it, to me prayer is quite powerful, particularly when done with religion and asking for answers.
I’ll provide you some strategies to achieve spiritual enlightenment. All of these are proven to work.
Community service. Transcendental meditation. Prayer, any kind functions. Yoga. Binaural beats.
Be certain to know at least a bit of the background of these practices. In my view they all can be practiced in a way, you may find what suits you best with faith and practice.
